    Architect Council | Innovation is the Name of the Game



    Adverse times are also best times for innovation! Choosing the right battles to fight, and reinventing ourselves with less resources are par for the course today.  However, not all innovation needs to be revolutionary or transformative. In fact, in the current economic crisis, opportunities for innovation can be found in aspects of our core competencies, and implemented as incremental and iterative changes.

    For this series of Architect Council LIVE WEBCASTS on August 24 and 25, 2009, we will discuss two of the many ways architects can innovate by recognizing the impact to architects, and learning how to effectively leverage cloud computing beyond just another place to host existing assets.

    Role of the Architect in Turbulent Times – August 24, 2009
    Miha Kralj – Architect, Microsoft

    A Closer Look at an Internet Service Bus – August 25, 2009
    Clemens Vasters – Principal Technical Lead .NET Services, Microsoft
